Jervis Bay to Port Hacking

A change in the weather forcast enabled us to leave Jervis Bay and head for Port Hacking. We once again motored through the night and arrived in the dark on a low tide.

Point Perpendicular is the north head of Jervis Bay and the sea was very rough until we cleared the area around it.

Freya’s B & G radar picked up some approaching storm fronts with uncanny accuracy so we experienced some quite severe rain and lightening while we were going through. Luckily they didn’t last long.

Arriving in Port Hacking we had decided to anchor in Gunnamatta Bay. The channel in was well marked but a little nerve wracking as parts of it were extremely close to shore. The captain joked later that day that we were so close that he could read the name of the maker of the navigational sign.

After getting a couple of hours 😴 we went ashore for breakfast at Cronulla.

Cronulla beach is where one of my favourite movies was filmed, Puberty Blues .

Today we are off to the RSL for lunch and to explore a little. We plan to attend tomorrow’s Anzac Day service and catch up with a friend from Marine Rescue.
